New carbon-friendly hotel to open at East Midlands airport

A new 216-bedroom hotel, incorporating innovative carbon friendly initiatives, is to be built at East Midlands Airport.

MAG Developments, the property and development arm of the Manchester Airports Group has signed contracts with the Azure Property Group to soon start construction of the hotel, which is expected to be ready within 18 months.

The hotel will include eight executive suites, a restaurant and bar, extensive conference facilities, swimming pool, sauna and steam rooms.

"This is the next stage of our hotel development, building on our existing portfolio of over 1,500 beds at our four UK airports and we look forward to delivering this new high quality, energy efficient hotel adjacent to the M1 at East Midlands," said John Atkins, managing director of MAG Developments.

MAG Developments is responsible for property development and management at Manchester Airport, East Midlands Airport, Bournemouth Airport and Humberside Airport. It currently has nine hotels at Manchester and three at East Midlands, operated by several different hotel brands including Radisson Blu, Hilton, Holiday Inn, Premier Inn and Travelodge.
